Mareham-le-Fen Residents Urged by Openreach to Embrace Ultrafast Broadband Opportunity

Openreach, a leading broadband provider, is calling upon Mareham-le-Fen residents in Lincolnshire to seize a remarkable opportunity for ultrafast, ultra-reliable full fibre broadband. With the company’s warning that this might be a once-in-a-lifetime chance, local homes and businesses are encouraged to apply for free Government broadband vouchers.

Currently, more than 70,000 homes and businesses across Lincolnshire already enjoy the benefits of full fibre broadband. However, Openreach believes that Mareham-le-Fen, located six miles south of Horncastle, has the potential to join this league and revolutionize its connectivity landscape.

Through the UK Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme and the deployment of advanced broadband signal boosting technology, Openreach aims to extend the reach of its full fibre network to remote rural communities. This initiative opens doors for areas like Mareham-le-Fen to embrace ultrafast technology.

The process involves residents checking their eligibility and pledging their vouchers on the Connect My Community website. Importantly, these vouchers come at no cost to residents and enable Openreach to collaborate with the local community in building a customised, co-funded network. This approach ensures that even premises in outlying rural areas, which may not be covered by private investment, can benefit from the ultrafast, ultra-reliable network.

Wendy Sycamore, Openreach’s regional engagement manager for the Midlands, expressed her excitement, stating, “This is an exciting opportunity for the people of Mareham-le-Fen to bring all the benefits of ultrafast, ultra-reliable full fibre broadband to their community.” Mareham-le-Fen now stands on the cusp of a digital transformation, provided that residents seize this opportunity to propel their community into the ultrafast broadband era.
